Re: [sw-l] Request-URI Too Large

Hi Jonathan  & Cherie,

TinyURL won't work.  The DeafVision server will still reject the redirect 
because of the URL length.

The offline version of SignText 1.0 has limitations with regard to size. 
The length depends on the client and the server.  For the client, it 
depends on the Operating System and browser.  For the server, it depends 
on a max URL length defined in a configuration file somewhere. 

Sorry that I can't give you a specific answer.  I'm using GET so that the 
offline version of SignText is possible.  SignPuddle 1.5 has switched to 
POST so it doesn't have this problem. 

If you send me the link privately (and tell me where you want it), I can 
hack it in for you.  Once it's in 1.5, the length error will go away.

Hi Steve,
I tried to post a document to SignPuddle and got the following message 
with . I had written it 
with SignText1.0 at home. So I guess I will have split it.  Do you have 
any idea as to how long each piece can be?
